Where are you putting the ECU?
That 19j has been on eBay for at least 3 years. The one with some "small crack in something that doesn't affect anything". I guess we can all dream, but it would take a newborn sucker to buy that thing IMHO.I sold mine for $1200 or as people on the other forum pointed out, I sold the tranny and transfer case and threw the engine in for free!
Actually, I put it on eBay with a starting bid of $500. At the time there was a completely rebuilt 19J on eBay for a $5k BIN!!! It got a dozen bids and the winner also wanted the radiator, air cleaner, engine mounts and any other component I could unbolt or cut off the frame. Here is the video I posted in the ad. Good luck!
Just got back from 1200 miles towing a 4000 lbs trailer through Oregon and Washington. No reliability issues. Motor and drive train ran flawlessly.
The 4.8 is a little sluggish on the hills but even working it hard, there were no issues.
Mileage worked out to 13mpg average. I thought that was pretty good for towing.
